Welcome to the January issue of EVISA's Speciation Newsletter !

Last year we celebrated 20 years of our presence in the internet and we were able to welcome our 20 Millionth visitor. In September 2022 we inaugurated our new server supporting the HTTPS protocol and since then the number of users using our service has increased again. During the year 2023 we had about 1.75 Million visitors on our site downloading about 8.2 Million pages of information. These impressive numbers clearly demonstrate that the EVISA portal is the premier source for all those looking for information about trace element determination and speciation. 

This month we continue our series of brief summaries giving access to valuable information about techniques and methodology used in speciation analysis. While electrochemical techniques seldom provide the selectivity to determine a single metal species, such techniques provide valuable information about the complexation of metal ions otherwise not easy to determine. Also electrochemical techniques feature on-site or in situ measurements and are able to greatly reduce the risk of possible speciation change or sample contamination (see the news below).

EVISA is keeping you updated with what is going on in speciation analysis. In this section you will find news about the most current research results, about trends, legal issues and information from manufacturers in the field of speciation analysis.

With all the links to further information and publications the News archive is a valuable collection of "hot topics" in speciation analysis. We continuously update even former news with new links and information so that all news are actual all the time.

The role of electrochemical techniques for speciation analysis
Electrochemical techniques provide valuable tools for speciation analysis due to their high sensitivity, selectivity, and ability to work in complex matrices.

With a list of about 50 current entries EVISA is informing you about interesting events and keeps you updated with their deadlines. By consulting our list of deadlines you won't miss the opportunity for early registration at reduced fee or the chance to submit your contribution in time.

EVISA provides information about open positions for Ph.D. students, PostDocs and permanent staff in the field of speciation. Looking to fill a vacancy or needing a new career challenge? Either way this service is FREE. Many laboratories and research facilities (from Greenland to Crete) have already found their highly educated stuff through this service by EVISA. If you would like to post an open position here, please contact us at info@speciation.net !





EVISA's directory of scientist is a versatile tool to facilitate contact with scientists in the field of speciation and related sciences. The directory is fully searchable for names, addresses, research topics etc.  You should bookmark this directory as an always up-to-date address book. (In order to hinder SPAM robots for collecting the E-mail accounts, we hide them in a special format).

More than 300 active scientists in the field of speciation analysis already joined the directory. Join this great directory that is extensively linked to all type of other information on this site, such as homepages, conferences and literature.

If your entry is still missing in this directory, please contact us at info@speciation.net.



EVISA provides an easy access to external information. Our database contains more than 2800 links to relevant information from numerous top scientific resources spread over the whole Web. The database is searchable both via full-text and categories such as elements, type of species and type of information. We are permanently updating our links section.

If your web site is missing here, please e-mail your link information to info@speciation.net.
